Konami on Leaked MGS 5/Ogre Screens: “Fake Rumours”

Hideo Kojima’s “Project Ogre” may be tied to Metal Gear Sold 5, if you’re to trust the screenshots allegedly leaked from this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con. If you trust Konami UK’s Twitter account instead, then it’s bogus.

A behind-closed-doors presentation given by Kojima to developers showing off the Fox Engine did take place, as confirmed by Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski via Twitter:

The leaked screenshots show the Metal Gear 5 logo with the words Open Ground Reconnaissance Endeavour above it — an acronym for OGRE. The official Twitter account of Konami UK initially played along, encouraging healthy speculation, before calling the screenshots “fake rumours.”

The screenshots are, at the very least, convincing fakes. Though I suppose it wouldn’t take much effort to mock-up that title screen, then take a photo of it on your computer screen to give it that “I took this picture on-site with a crappy cell phone camera” look.
